Saffron

1126 SW 18th
Veggie Pakora
Mulligatawny Soup
Vegetable Korma
Palak Paneer
Cost: about $35

Bill and I had passed Saffron on the MAX, as we went to the zoo last weekend, and decided we should try it. Just our luck, they were added to the D-Dish family of restaurants. Or maybe it wasn't our luck.

I just finished throwing away most of what we ordered. The food was very greasy, and the flavors almost non-existent. Even the naan was off--strangely textured and doughy--what I would expect from McDharma's. Frankly, I still feel a bit queasy from the whole thing.

Saffron gets a big two thumbs down.

If you're ever out on the west side try Curry Leaf in the Bethany area of Beaverton. $6.50 per person all you can eat lunch during the week. Unlike the other Indian resteraunts in town, Indians actually eat this food.

Bombay Cricket in SE is also highly recommended.

I wandered over here from WWeek partially because of my food obsession and partially because I recognized you as a Delivered Dish regular customer. I'm an occasional driver there (been to you once, I think!), and my SO is the dispatcher. So, hello! Congrats on the fame and fortune in the paper.

Anyway, I'm commenting on this entry in particular to express total agreement with you on Saffron. Jay (afore mentioned SO and dispatcher) and I gave them a try a couple weeks back - he wasn't particularly impressed, and I was actively disappointed. My supposedly spicy lamb vindaloo tasted like bland pot roast... and the naan, eh. Not quite right. My advice is to stick with India Grill for Ddish Indian food. Mmmyum!

Hi Jessica!

As you've probably noticed in perusing this site, the SU and I *love* D-Dish! Be sure to introduce yourself if you end up at our door again.
